DEPosition: by the Rev. David Pattee, senior pastor
Last Sunday I wished a “Happy Easter” to a member of our church who had been out of town several weeks.
He smiled and answered, “Thanks, but it’s a little late isn’t it?”
Is it ever too late to share a “Happy Easter?”
The season of Easter runs for 50 days until Pentecost. Easter Sunday is just the beginning of the season, but it is even more true and to the point to say that every Sunday is Easter. Every Sunday is a celebration of creation and recreation, a celebration of the resurrection of life in Jesus Christ.
The month of May is filled with Easter events. On the 7th we have Confirmation and Communion. On the 14th we have Mother’s Day and a special service led by our puppet ministry. On the 21st we have Baccalaureate with a celebration of our graduates.
And, on May 28th, the Seventh Sunday of Easter, we will tell again the story of Jesus’ ascension, welcome the summer, and remember those who have given “the last full measure of devotion” in service to this country.
I’ll see you in church.
